For artists

It is now too late to register a venue for Oxfordshire Artweeks 2018 May festival.

The dates for the 2019 Artweeks festival are 4th-27th May, with a regional focus on Oxford city (4th-12th), South Oxfordshire & Vale (11th-19th) and North and West Oxfordshire (18th-27th including bank holiday Monday). The deadline for registering for the 2019 festival will be 31st December 2018 and we are unable to accept late entries.

Artweeks is an artists' organisation which provides opportunities for Oxfordshire artists and designer-makers with a flagship event in May, a festival of open studios and pop-up exhibitions across the county, in which anyone can take part if they live or work in Oxfordshire or are a member of an established Oxfordshire based art group, society or guild. If you would like to exhibit, you need to register as an Artweeks member, find a venue for your exhibition and sign up to exhibit either as a solo artist or as part of a group exhibition using the on-line registration system.

We also host a smaller Christmas Season designed to give those Artweeks members who registered for the May exhibitions the chance to promote a November/December show they would expect to hold anyway – whether that’s as a solo artist, or as a participant at a Christmas fair or other event/venue (at dates of your choosing between 16th November and 9th December). If you are a member organising a local event that's primarily for Artweeks members and local artisans, you may take a listing as a group or event rather than an individual – however, if you plan to include participants who are not Artweeks members, please contact the office on artweeks@artweeks.org to confirm that the listing can be included. Registration for the Christmas Season 2018 will take place during June 2018.
